In February, David Jones presented it’s A/W 16 launch—signalling the start of the new season. Fashion insiders forgot all about their summer essentials and started to plan ahead for the cooler months. Tonight, DJ’s will present S/S 17, so we’re looking back at least season’s show, to see if we actually wore the trends we saw on the runway.
So what did we see Jessica Gomes, Jesinta Campbell, and Montana Cox (amongst a host of other models) wear on the runway? The ’70s was unsurprisingly the major trend, and boy did they hit the nail on the head. All season we’ve been obsessed with flared sleeves, soft suedes, paisley print, and floaty dresses. Merchandise director Donna Player explained at the time “artisanal textures and quirky combinations help capture the authentic mood of the '70s with the return of timeless retro colours and loose, free-spirited shapes”.
Looks like DJ’s was correct, so we can’t wait to see what the department store has on offer for tonight. Stay tuned and we’ll bring you the ultimate runway report and best looks.
